6:16 pm
get there. >> we have to rely on a second company which makes, one, survivability of any trap victims harder and, secondly, it makes it a far more dangerous environment for our firefighters. >> reporter: now it turns out in reporting the response times, the department was not looking at the time it took for that second crew to arrive so the chief now says the san jose standard of eight minutes 80% of the time might be off. >> the numbers can only go down. so our responses can only be worse. >> reporter: the fire union credits the chief who was in meetings all day for discovering the flaw and address iing it. one neighbor isn't too worried about the added response time. >> the responses are pretty quick. sure, wouldn't be there in second but within minutes we would probably arrive. i don't worry about it.

> california's prison crisis is officially over, at least that's what governor brown is saying. >> yesterday he told the feds to stop meddling in the state's business despite a looming deadline to lower the prison population. a deadlinec california will certain not meet. >> reporter: jessica, what's happened in california the last few years is nothing short of extraordinary. we have chopped our prison population by 40,000 inmates primarily by shifting the onus to local governments. but that's the key here because local governments still have the final word on where convicted criminals are held in jail or in prison. governor brown is wrong. >> the prison, today i've signed this proclamation stating that

comprehensive study to date. while the state has dramatically reduced and vastly improved the health care system for innovates before the federal government got involved in the first place, there's one thing governor brown isn't telling you, she says, about presideison reduction. >> the short coming was that it allowed every county to become its own sentencing commission. every county can decide who should go to presideison, who s stay locally. >> reporter: you heard them right. sentencing guidelines were never changed so local government already overburdened with rising populations and less money for all services were exercising control over where a person convicted of a crime ends up, jail or prison. she says she has interviewed more than 50 officials statewide and while some governments say they'll play ball with the governor, certainly many of them will not.

>> the question we're asking him them, how are you implementing realignment? some of them like los angeles are teaching deputies how to charge differently. make sure if you have the evidence you charge so that person goes to prison. >> reporter: the latest numbers support the idea they are reacting. drops have leveled off in recent months and long-term projections show the prison population going up not down by thousands. which brings us back to our point. governor brown can't say the crisis is resolved not when the state is treading water with no clue as to high how populations will rise in the future. sam brock, nbc bay area news. vice president joe biden launched a public effort today to build support for the president's promise to curb gun violence. he called gun control advocates to the white house and pledged to take action quickly. while many were encouraged, they are facing impassioned
